Global Mapping and Survey on Youth, Peace & Security - The Americas

Dear Peace and Justice Studies Association,

My name is Brian Hough. I am assisting with outreach for the Americas of UNOY and I am looking for youth organizations or initiatives working in the USA, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean on peace issues with young people under the age of 30.

We are running the Global Survey on Youth Peace and Security and we would like to count on your support to fill-out the Survey and share it with your network at the national and international level. The Survey findings will contribute to the Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security mandated by UN Security Council Resolution 2250, so the responses will inform the future development of youth participation in peace and security. Equally important, it will put organizations/initiatives on the map by being part of the Youth 4 Peace platform promoted by the United Nations.

The Survey will identify what youth organizations and initiatives in each country are doing, what impact they have made and their needs and goals for the future.  Please find the Survey as follows:
